Dr. Michio Abe answered:

Is there any link between Thyroidism and Fibromyalgia and/or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

Interesting question

Fibromyalgia
Hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome all share similar symptoms, such as fatigue, depression and muscle pain. I would say many patients with uncontrolled hypothyroidism could have the same symptoms as patients with fibromyalgia and CFS. They could coexist. But most patients with fibromyalgia and CFS don't have hypothyroidism.

A question was posed, about thyroid levels possibly causing hallucinations and or delusions.. where can I find more info on that?

Thyroid storm

Delusion
An extreme form of hyperthyroidism called "thyroid storm" can be associated with hallucinations and delusions. People with this are extremely sick, with many manifestations of extreme hyperthyroidism including fever, very high heart rate and blood pressure, agitation, weight loss. It is very rare.

Could my Asthma attacks be Hormones and/or Thyroid-related?

Yes, sort of

Thyroid
Some can have asthma worsen with estrogens, stage of cycle, and also with thyroid disease. Often the baseline level of asthma defines how likely asthma reacts to these- i.e. if the allergic triggers, sinusitis (if present), ge reflux (if present and if contributing), and if chronic airway inflammation is controlled (usually inhaled corticosteroids), these hormonal factors are less of an issue.

Can degeneration and/or bone spurs in the cervical spine adversely effect the thyroid gland?

No

Thyroid
The degeneration of the cervical spine (neck skeleton) should have no effect on the thyroid gland. The gland is separated from the spine by the trachea (windpipe) and esophagus (swallowing tube that transports food from mouth to stomach).

I recently, 1 week ago, had my right lobe removed from my thyroid. I now have a large hard lump above my surgicial site. (hematoma) Is this common and/or home treatable?

See your surgeon

Thyroid
If you had surgery 1 week ago, you should have a follow up appointment with your surgeon soon. Call his/her office and describe what you have. They will determine if they need to see you soon and move up your appointment. If it gets worst or cause problem breathing, call the surgeon and go to the ER.

Dr. Alan Feldman answered:

We have case , femal patien , age 60 years, the TSH less than 0.05 while T4 in normal range , and she has not any symptom of thyroidism , is it ok ?

Subclinical hyperthy

A low TSH with a normal T4 and no symptoms is usually subclinical hyperthyroidism. She may have a multinodular goiter that is autonomously functioning, or very early Graves disease. A T3 level and free T4 level should be checked. There is a higher risk of developing atrial fibrillation despite the normal T4 level, but many endocrinologists would just follow her levels for progression.
